    I work in a school district, and we have root kit running through our domain. It is a new variant of qakbot, it makes a folder in c:\doc~\All Users\_qbothome. It gathers all information stored in auto complete for the computer and web browsers, and it has a key logger for https sites. It stores this information in a txt file and uploads it to servers, for identity theft. It is phoning home to domains in china for updates on a regular basis. We have had the rootkit since some time in August, and all of this time has been undetected by Trend Micro. I suggest blocking up002.cn and nt2002.cn to protect yourselves. (If you do not already block all of cn)

    What school district are you located in? I've heard of other infections....

    What are the names of the processes? qbotinj.exe? qbotnti.exe?

    Thanks.
